Official narrative

No danger. No need to label GM food.

Safety

Full article: Stub class article GM/Food/Safety

In the US, the FDA by deeming GM food "substantially equivalent"[citation needed] dodged all need to regulate its safety. This appears to be an underestimate of the risks.[1]

“Conspiracy theorists — some of them scientifically trained — have claimed that... that vaccines and genetically modified foods are unsafe.”
Ted Goertzel (2010)  Conspiracy theories in science [2]

In the UK, in 1999, The Guardian published an article by Laurie Flynn and Michael Gillard which reported that

“The editor of one of Britain's leading medical journals, the Lancet, says he was threatened by a senior member of the Royal Society, the voice of the British science establishment, that his job would be at risk if he published controversial research questioning the safety of genetically modified foods. Richard Horton declined to name the man who telephoned him. But the Guardian has identified him as Peter Lachmann, the former vice-president and biological secretary of the Royal Society and president of the Academy of Medical Sciences. The Guardian has been told that an influential group within the Royal Society has set up what appears to be a "rebuttal unit" to push a pro-biotech line and counter opposing scientists and environmental groups.”
